Detective Conan Movie Novelization

Sunflowers of Inferno is the 19th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 18, 2015.





In a skyscraper in Manhattan, an auction house presents the stand-out piece of the night's auction: one of the famous 'Sunflower' paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. The painting belongs to a series painted by Van Gogh, an artist beloved by Japan, in his house in Arles in the south of France. Until recently, art historians believed there were seven sunflower paintings but only a year ago, an unknown eighth painting was discovered in Arles, with the style and colours being an exact match for the second Sunflower painting that was once kept in Ashiya, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Historians have examined this new painting and concluded that it must have been painted by Van Gogh himself or, at least, by someone working with him. The second Sunflower painting used to belong to Koyata Yamamoto, a businessman, but was thought to have been destroyed in World War II, so the current theory is that this newly discovered painting could be a reproduction of the lost one. The painting draws considerable interest and at the subsequent auction, Jirokichi Suzuki buys it for a record price.

Jirokichi holds a press conference the day after the auction and announces that he plans to collect all seven Sunflower paintings to hold an exhibition in Lake Rock Museum, Shinjuku, a newly constructed museum that belongs to the Suzuki Group. He says the title of the exhibition will be "the sunflowers who longed to return to Japan." He already has made contact with the owners of the other six paintings and obtained their permission to get the paintings on loan, having to promise he would transport and preserve the paintings safely and treat them with the utmost care and security while they are in his museum. To help him with this task, Jirokichi presents seven experts that he hired for the exhibition, calling them "the Seven Samurai". As the experts join him on stage, suddenly a playing card comes flying through the sky and falls onto the stage. The card carries an announcement and Kaito Kid's logo. Kid appears, holds his card gun out and causes a mass panic. He throws a smoke bomb and flees, but Detective Charlie, one of Jirokichi's "samurai", a security professional, pursues him. Kid is backed into a corner by Charlie, but lets off a flash bomb, breaks the window behind him and jumps off the building, flying away with his hangglider.

The following morning, a Sky Japan plane hired by Jirokichi and painted with the Sunflowers leaves for Japan, carrying the newest painting on board, along with Jirokichi, Sonoko and six of the "samurai" as well as a special guest - none other than: Shinichi Kudo. But just as the jet descends towards Haneda Airport, a bomb detonates in the cargo hold, blowing the door away and taking the painting with it. The explosion was large enough to destroy the engines as well and the airplane goes into freefall, causing a panic onboard. Kogoro, the 7th Samurai chosen by Jirokichi, has been waiting at Haneda Airport to receive the painting along with the police and Ran, wanting to surprise Sonoko. They can only watch the plane spinning out of control and Ran, scared for her best friend, panics and can't bear look while the frantic pilot tries to land safely. They do make it down in one piece, but, just after they've touched the ground, received by emergency services, Kaito Kid comes flying out of nowhere with the paining in hand. Conan chases after Kid but can't catch him. Strangely enough, Kid flies off without the painting. Conan finds it, brings it to Jirokichi's Samurai and they confirm that the painting hasn't been damaged.

Suspects: Natsumi Miyadai, Koji Azuma, Keiko Anderson, Kumiko Kishi, Taizo Ishimine, and Kaitou Kid

Several days later, Jirokichi invites the Seven Samurai to a conference to plan what counter-measures they can take against Kid. The owners of the other paintings had also become reluctant in loaning him their paintings. That morning, Conan, Agasa, and the Detective Boys head to the Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art, to see the 5th painting. Just after Conan leaves, Kogoro receives another notice from Kid. The Samurai decode it and find that the notice states that he will steal the 5th painting tonight. Conan, Haibara, and the others are viewing the 5th painting together with an old woman named Umeno, said to visit and view the painting every day, when Jirokichi, Kogoro, Inspector Nakamori, and the others arrive. Conan quickly realizes a case is unfolding and joins up with them. They decide that they should move the painting to a safe place before night comes, and the painting is to be wrapped up under the instructions of the Seven Samurai. However, Kid had already infiltrated the staff, and steals the painting.

Location: Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art
Advanced Notice: Tonight, I'll take the first replica (the one on the left side of the La Berceuse).

He also leaves behind a message to the museum's curator, saying he will return it if paid ten billion yen. Jirokichi immediately decides to pay the enormous ransom. The deal with Kid turns into chaos, however Conan and the others miraculously succeed in retrieving the 5th painting. However, even Conan begins to wonder about Kid's escalating crimes which have come to endanger many lives.

Victim: Hideo Haraguchi and Jirokichi Suzuki
Suspects: Kaitou Kid
I'll hand over the Sunflowers I just took for a reasonable amount of ten billion yen. I'll see you in room 1412 in the Touto Plaza Hotel. Bring old bills and lay them out on the bed. If you can't, I won't make the deal.
Attempted Murder

Location: Suzuki residence
Victim: Jirokichi Suzuki
Suspects: Kaitou Kid?

With Kid's motives as yet a mystery, the exhibition of the Seven Sunflowers at Lake Rock Museum meets its opening day. The most excited to see the exhibition are the Detective Boys, Conan, Ran, and Sonoko. Just as they begin to view the paintings, Conan spots a Kid Card. The enigmatic message could not be deciphered by even the Seven Samurai, but its presence attests that Kid is already within the museum. Jirokichi quickly orders to evacuate the museum goers and staff, to trap Kid inside the museum. However, he seems to have anticipated this turn of events, and blows up the electric room, leaving the museum in a blackout.

Someone pour chemical to blows up the electric room into blackout?

Then, a great fire also breaks out, leaving Jirokichi and the others no option but to send the paintings to their storage room, and evacuate to a special room outside. But, the 2nd and 5th painting could not be collected, and the inferno closes in on them. The only people remaining in Lake Rock Museum are a great detective, a great phantom thief, and...?!
